Beautiful hotel with nice private balcony. Great amenities throughout the hotel - rooftop bar, restaurant, pool, gym and a beautiful breakfast spread (delicious assortment of pastries, cookies, eggs, casseroles, potatoes, yogurt, fruit, vegetables!! so good!).

nice hotel which is not far from the main action. it does share a lot with the central bus depot and is off a busy road so it can be noisy. breakfast was a nice spread and included hot items. and rooftop had a nice view.
